Sold into slavery to a cruel plantation owner, his moral fortitude and medical ability soon earn him the favour of the island's governor, and the attentions of Arabella, his master's niece. When the town is attacked by marauding Spanish buccaneers, Blood springs to the rescue, and with a motley yet loyal band of shipmates escapes to begin a life of noble piracy and adventure on the caribbean seas. A classic swashbuckling tale of piracy, romance and redemption, "Captain Blood" stands as one the greatest adventure novels of the 20th century. It features an introduction by Kate Mosse."@en ;
